Vice President Cheney Bites The Ambassador From Liechtenstein
Washington, D.C. - In a highly charged confrontation that is sending shock-waves around the world, an enraged Dick Cheney bit the ambassador of Liechtenstein on the shoulder during a state dinner at the White house. Apparently, Cheney was chewing on a prime rib bone and glanced up to see the ambassador from Liechtenstein staring at him. For some reason, this upset Cheney who bared his teeth, snarled and then lunged at the startled ambassador.
Like a possessed pit bull terrier, Cheney sank his teeth into the ambassador and refused to let go. As stunned dignitaries looked on, Cheney had to be forcibly pulled off by his secret service detail. Immediately after the incident, an aide to the vice president retrieved Cheney's false teeth from the ambassador's shoulder. The ambassador was then taken to the hospital where he received 12 stitches and a tetanus shot.
Later that same evening, Cheney's wife, Lynne, said to reporters "Two things about Dick, never look him in the eyes when he is chewing on a bone and don't ever cross him once he's made up his mind. He'll crush you like a June bug."
